Sofia Richie has her very own grill — and not the kind for cooking burgers.
Last week, just days after her split from Justin Bieber was announced, the 18-year-old model got a visit from New York-based jeweler Richie Rich, who fitted her for three custom grills made with 14-carat gold and high-quality diamonds.
“Sofia Richie is going for the gold after splitting with Justin Bieber… ordering up 3 custom grillz,” TMZ revealed to readers on September 27. “New York jeweler Richie Nektalov, aka Richie Rich, tells us he stopped by Sofia’s pad while he was in L.A. last week to personally fit her for the grillz.”
According to the TMZ report, Sofia Richie’s grills cost between $2,500 and $3,000 a piece.
Sofia Richie began dating 22-year-old Bieber in early August, and for weeks, the couple appeared to be involved in a full-blown relationship as they traveled to Japan and Mexico. However, earlier this month, after celebrating Richie’s birthday together, the couple called it quits after dating for just six weeks.
While Bieber was in Los Angeles with Richie for some time, he is now in Europe, where he will remain until late November when his tour dates overseas come to an end. Meanwhile, Richie has been traveling as well. After making an appearance in Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 fashion show, she traveled to Milan, where she attended several fashion week events.

Ironically, Sofia Richie found herself at the same event as Bieber’s other ex-girlfriend, Hailey Baldwin, during her time in Milan. As the two women attended the Dolce & Gabbana store opening, they appeared to keep their distance. While they did pose for photos with other attendees, no photos of the two of them together have surfaced.
As Justin Bieber fans will recall, the 22-year-old singer was involved in an on-and-off romance with Hailey Baldwin until May, when he seemed to embark on a relationship with actress Nicola Peltz. Weeks later, however, Bieber and Peltz’s time together came to an end, and he was spotted with his rumored flame Kourtney Kardashian.
While Bieber was believed to be bouncing around from girl to girl throughout the summer, things seemed to change when he began spending time with Sofia Richie. Then, on September 19, E! News confirmed the end of their relationship.
“They were never officially together, but more casual hanging out and having fun,” the source claimed. “It was super-hot and heavy, and because Justin doesn’t want a relationship right now, he wanted to cool things down… it wasn’t an intentional cool-off… [It] just sort of happened on its own.”
“They are still friends though and will continue to see each other like they did before they were dating,” a second insider shared. “They are taking a backseat though on the romance side of things and just focusing on being friends at this time.”
“Besides hooking up it all started as really good friends so they have a great foundation,” a source revealed at the time they began dating. “They have not discussed titles yet with each other, just taking it slow.”

Following news of Sofia Richie’s breakup, a source claimed Bieber simply preferred to be single.
“Justin Bieber, 22, loves dating, and occasionally a girl will grab his eye for a brief moment, but then he finds himself missing the benefits of bachelorhood,” a source told Hollywood Life. “One thing that was different with Sofia Richie, 18, is that Justin thought was she was really cool.”
